Basically, If a ninja wanted to kill a pirate, the pirate would be dead before he even knew there was a Ninja there.

Ninjas all the way man, but Samurai's own all!

dude pirates would pwn ninjas. you guys are retarded, and then pokemon would run out of the woods and devour the survivors. it'd be epic.
#17
how are half of those facts even relivent(sp) to the fight? lol!

but pirates would win, because they'd just kill the pirates before the pirates were there. but of course, a platypus could pwn them all with ease.

I dunno, this is one of the hardest decicions of my life. Ninja's are stealth and sh*t, but pirates have guns, cannon and f*cking cool ships. I'd have to say pirates purely cause pirate metal if sick, and cause they have gun's and parrots.
#21
A Viking would kick both of their asses. But out of the two, I would say a ninja although pirates are way cooler.
#24
Mecha-Streisand would win.

Pirates, because they're more metal, they have slaves, they fire big guns, they have big beards and eye patches, they are totally ruthless and will slice you limb from limb, they have big boats, ninjas cannot walk on their hands for 100miles, ninjas look stupid which pirates look awesome - dressed in black, brown, green, blood and beard, they wear their enemies limbs as trophies, they have black hats brandished with skulls, they drink rum.

Pirates, they completely destroy ninjas; and this constant worship of Japanese culture gets very irritating.

BUT, then there are vikings, who are just like pirates, but they use hefty axes as well, row their longboats and they get a whole load of sweet Swedish blonde girls daily. And they drink meade.
Quote by DrewsGotTheLife
yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too

PIRATES

Wear eye patches


Stereotypical, wasn't only true of pirates, but was generally true of a lot of people who had lost their eye, not just pirates.

Fight with swords.


Pirates probably only used swords when necessary., and in fact many buccaneers were expert marksmen.

Represented by a skull and bones


That is but the most famous of the Jolly Rogers, there were many many Jolly Rogers. In fact, pirate ships carried many colours, and only flew the Jolly Roger when they were in attack range of their prey as a means of psychological warfare. If a ship refused to surrender, the red flag was raised, which means the pirates will attack and show no mercy.

Obnoxious and stink horribly


True of all seamen due the the poor conditions of classical ships.

Have large shadows from being fat


Vitually all seamen would have been skinny due to the poor food at sea.

Launch cannonballs


The aim of a pirate was to take the ship and its cargo - not to destroy the ship.

Ride in big wooden boats


Duh.

Put daggers in their teeth


Largely stereotypical, was probably only done when you need to put your knife somewhere you could get it easily, and would be picking it up again soon, although I imagine they would put it into it's sheath, as it's safer, so this is pretty much untrue.

Say "Arrrrrrrrrrgghh"


Pop culture.

Limp with pegged legs


Injuries were common, the pegged leg is pop culture. A sailor would not be able to sail with a wooden leg.

Taught by other pirates


Actually, many pirates were navy personell, and were as such trained by the navy.

Have names like Schmee


Pop culture, pirates would have had common names just like everyone else of the time.

Can be smelled before seen


I guarantee this is false. You would see a ship long before you smelled it, and conditions were so bad, that they would smell no different to you, and as such you probably wouldn't smell anything.

Use rowboats


True of all seamen, powerboats hadn't been invented yet.

Drink all day long


Not all the time, but they did have large daily rum rations, resulting in brain damage often. Probably the nearest thing you have got accurate that was not true of all seamen.

Rely on other crew members


So did all seamen, but there was a sense of brotherhood on pirate ships.

Make traitors walk a wooden plank.


Pop culture, popularized by Peter Pan. It is more likely they just stabbed or shot them.

Don't bother hiding, ever.


Pirates carried various colours so they were better able to hide.

Kill people with black powder guns


They were the only guns available.

Have many pirate buudies backing them up


Death rates were high, there probably weren't many people on the ship to back them up.

NINJAS

Lack any personality


All people have personalities, although ninja were unattached to the people they killed. They had to be.

Wear headbands


Ninja wore whatever they had to to go unnoticed. If they were seiging a place, they would probably wear dark clothes best suited to the conditions.

Fight skillfully with any object


Largely true.

Can remove a spleen in one swift motion


Highly unlikely. It is virtually impossible to remove any internal organ in one fluid motion.

Live in your house secretly for days


False. A ninja would want to get in and out as quickly as possible to present minimum risk of detection.

Can remove their shadow if needed


Nothing can remove its shadow except by hiding in the shadows, a useful thing to do to avoid detection.

Hurl shurikens


True, but I'd be impressed if you knew what a shuriken is.

Go anywhere they want instantly


False. No-one can teleport. If ninja could teleport, why were they experts at sneaking?

Catch bullets in their teeth


Mythbusters proved that this is impossible.

Kill themselves if they make a noise


False. Ninjas would kill themselves if they were captured so as to ensure they could not be tortured to give away things like the location of a ninja tribe.

Can run 100 miles on their hands


Most men cannot run 100 miles on their legs, never mind their hands.

Train 20 hours/day starting from age 2


20 hours is an exaggeration, and as to from what age, I could not tell you.

Have cool words like Sepulku


It's seppuku, and was performed by the samurai. Ninjas just killed themselves so as not to be captured, they had no use for ritual suicide.

Are masters of disguise


Largely true - they had to be on missions.

Can hover for hours


Man cannot hover.

Flip out and kill everything


Ninjas wanted to avoid detection, and killed as little as possible. They had to have high levels of self-discipline to survive, flipping out meant getting killed.

Are completely self-sufficient


Ninja tribes, largely. But they still needed money which is why their espionage and assassin skills were bought. Individual ninja, no.

Split planks vertically with their nose


False. I imagine that seeing as you have no bone or muscle in your nose, that the already virtually impossible task of splitting a plank vertically is made completely impossible, and not even a part of pop culture but something you made up.

Can hide in incense smoke


Incense smoke is generally too thin to hide in, but if there was a thick enough cloud of smoke to hide in, a ninja would make use of it if they needed a place to hide.

Kill People.


Duh.

Usually work solo


True, considering espionage rarely needed more than one person, and espionage was the most common mission for the ninja.

CONCLUSION

The chances of any ship, never mind a poorly stocked pirate ship sailing past the Spanish fleets around Africa and all the way up to Japan were remote. If, by some sheer accident a pirate and a ninja did meet, and decided to fight (which would be against both of their interests), it would depend on two main things, armament and the element of surprise. If the ninja had the element of surprise, the pirate would stand no chance. If he did not have the element of suprise, the situation depends on the arms of the two men. If the pirate had a gun with ammo, he would win. If not, and the ninja was aremd, the ninja would win. If both were unarmed, the ninja would win. However the chances of them ever meeting, never mind deciding to fight, is so remote that this is barely worth considering.

How many times have we seen this thread? oh well my 2 cents.

I don't know why people think Ninjas are cool. They were well trained but never were really known to go toe to toe with anyone.

And Pirates, what the hell did pirates ever do that people think they could compete with highly trained assassins?

So Ninjutsu vs. Fencing(i guess).

I guess i have to vote Ninja.

Ninjas can kill anyone they want! Ninjas cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town. My friend Mark said that he saw a ninja totally uppercut some kid just because the kid opened a window.



And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
